Hello.

There's some strange thing going on with my custom shortcut keys :thumbsup: . For some shortcuts, everything works fine. For others, they keys refuse to get set. And others, the settings go away after a reboot.

It's not anything serious, but I just wanted to see if anyone has experienced anything like this.

By the way, can anyone figure out where the info for the shortcut keys are stored? I'm searched around for awhile now with no success.

With Regards,
The Panda

Hello.

I noticed that if the shortcut is on my desktop, the settings are saved. But if the shortcut resides elsewhere, it doesn't work after a reboot :thumbsup: . Also, if it is on my desktop, and I set the link to hidden or give it system file properties, it stops working.

I'll keep testing it out.

With Regards,
The Panda

Hello.

Was able to improvise by running a batch file with shortcut.exe to reapply the shortcut key settings at each startup.

Hello Extremeboy.

Sure. No problem.

@ECHO OFF
shortcut /f:"%userprofile%\desktop\batch\shortcuts\admincmd.lnk" /a:c /t:"%userprofile%\desktop\batch\admincmd.exe" /h:1601
That is the shortcut to bring up my administrator's command prompt. There're also some other ones, but I see no purpose to put it here as they are just the same line repeated with different names.

If you are interested in the tool, you can download it here along with some other free command line utilities.

With Regards,
The Panda
